About OGFL

FA Charter Standard League & Respect League

The Oxfordshire Girls Football League is an FA Charter Standard League run entirely by volunteers. Our primary aim is to provide a sound framework for local Girls football teams to enjoy football in a safe, fun, fair and competitive environment.

We are proud of our history and the fact that what we are doing currently involves over 835 children in over 60 teams from over 26 clubs, and growing season on season in Oxfordshire and neighbouring counties. We are passionate about girls football and the FA Respect agenda, both of which drive us to provide even more football, fun and enjoyment for our players, managers, parents, supporters and officials.

Child Protection

It is very important that we look after children and ensure their safety within the League.

Whilst we cannot control what goes on outside of the League we can advise and help to extend the protection as far as is necessary.

We care for children, especially those who play football in the League, and we also want to protect the Brothers, Sisters, Cousins and Friends of our players.

Anyone who wants help or advice:- Contact:The League Welfare Officer



League History

The Oxfordshire Girls Football League was founded in 1990 as the Oxford Girls Football League by several clubs that wanted to have organised football for the girls within their clubs.

The founding clubs were Barton, Chipping Norton, Coven Witches, Kidlington Youth, Northway and Quarry. Originally matches took place for U16s in a central location, Court Place Farm, home of Oxford City FC, with girls attending from around Oxfordshire for friendly 7v7 matches once a month. As the matches became more popular, more teams joined and a more organised approach was taken to running the League. The age group expanded from just U16s to include an U14 age group and matches were organised on a home and away basis.

As the game continued to grow in popularity, so the League continued to expand and incorporated an U12 age group. In 2004 the League went back to basics and invited clubs to bring along their U10s for a monthly tournament. The tournaments proved so popular that the U10 League was started the following season. In 2014, Monthly U9s Festivals began. Like the U10s, these proved immensely popular and scheduled weekly fixtures will be played from January 2017 until the end of Season 2016-17. Additionally, in 2016-17 the league began organising and running the FA Futsal County Championship, acquiring this from the local County FA.

The League has progressed immeasurably over the last Twenty-Six years and now provides weekly football for 1000 girls, 70+ teams from 28 clubs across eight age groups from Under 9s through to Under 16s.

In 2017 the league were awarded the FA Charter Standard League of the Year Award for Oxfordshire.

Some of the girls that have played in the League are now playing for Oxford Utd Women and other WSL teams.
